Samantha Akkineni, Rashmika Mandanna, Nayanthara are the leading actresses of the South. Interestingly, even Bollywood has its own lineup of leading beauties like Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, and more who have a massive fan following that ensures that their movies attract a lot of box-office moolah.
Apart from that, there are veteran star kids like Alia Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor, and Sonakshi Sinha who are extremely talented as well as younger star kids like Sara Ali Khan, Ananya Panday, and Janhvi Kapoor who are trying their bit to gain a good foothold in the tinsel town.
So, despite the availability of so many options as leading ladies why are the Bollywood producers picking up famous actresses from the South? Not only Rashmika, Nayanthara, or Samantha, but even divas like Pooja Hegde and Rakul Preet Singh are also doing quite well in Bollywood today.
The one particular reason is that all these actresses are highly professional and can deliver the best. Since they have enjoyed top-level success and have already worked in big-budget movies, actresses like Rashoo, Nayan, and Sam have a good understanding of what and how to deliver and present themselves in such big flicks.
Another important factor is that while the Southern audience knows them very well, for the Bollywood audience all these actresses are fresh faces. While Katrina has worked with all the Khans and leading B-town heroes including Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor, and Akshay Kumar, Deepika has also been paired multiple times with SRK, Ranbir, and Akshay.
Coming to the young brigade except for a few names, none of them have proven to be matured enough to head a big-budget movie or OTT release. Moreover, today Katrina and Deepika charge anywhere in between Rs 8 to 10 crore while producers can rope in Rashmika Mandanna, Nayanthara, and Samantha Akkineni at a considerably lower remuneration. These are the few reasons why today Nayanthara is being considered as the leading lady for SRK’s next with Atlee, Rashmika is a part of two Bollywood movies, and Samantha was offered the crucial role of intense Raji in The Family Man 2.
